The Collection of all Collection’s by Lidiany Braga

by Lisa Ajello on January 22, 2018






One of my favorite emerging designers of 2018 is the Brazilian babe, “Liddiany Braga”.

She always had a ❤️ for design and the arts from her swim wear days to designing her very own bridal gown and now her easy to wear, feminine frocks that are a favorite among every woman from almost every walk of life.

Lidianny Braga knows what women want to feel beautiful as far as silhouette goes, attention to detail and just the right touch she adds to everyone of her coveted pieces.

Lidianny has travelled the globe and learned about women from different regions, different sizes and different lifestyles and somehow she seems to have been able to please the masses.

Mrs. Braga has also had a strong background in high end sales on all ends of the spectrum, she is touted as the  best of the best in high end customer service, and  above all has always gone the extra mile for every customer and inquiry that has passed over her desk.

I am forecasting that the Lidiany Braga Collection will be the IT collection of 2018 and beyond!

Easy to fold, easy to pack for your last minute weekend vaca’s or Hampton getaways!!!

He has already made a name for himself and left his mark in the NYC fashion scene with his over the top designs and insane events!!!


NYC is wishing Clash by Dash boatloads of LOVE, and sending alifetime of LOVE,HAPPINESS, and BLESSINGS to our girl PAT FIELDS!!!





I would say it is safe to say after speaking with 23 year old John Beard  who was diagnosed with stage 2 lung cancer,epilepsy, and kidney failure that I have met my first real earth angel!!!

His story begins after his grandmother passed on when he was 8 years of age  and he quickly became part of the Florida foster care system which showed him how tough  life really could be being bounced from home to home, school to school, and even to crisis centers when he opted not to take the mandatory medication. John was told  it was a MUST when your in the foster system since the powers that be labeled foster children to be depressed! He was by force injected with medication. I can’t even imagine the fear such a young person going through such a traumatic experience must have felt! No one there to stop this and that very moment I’m sure he felt like a statistic!

At one time mentally and physically life was rough for John, but as he grew and grew in both aspects he knew that life would just get worse if he didn’t turn it around for himself.He knew know one else was going to and it was up to him even after being diagnosed with such illnesses that it was make it or break it! He went through a time that he was in trouble with the law,abused, and ran away but it was time to stop running and turn his situation around for himself and as an inspiration and role model to so many others which he is today!!!! At one time he took life too serious , he felt he never had a reason to smile,and  he felt a sense of abandonment.Today he keeps himself grounded by not beating himself up, has a new thought process and a disciplined knowledge learning from the past by staying humbled.

John may have gotten sick from moving from home to home and being exposed to asbestos or mold  and fibers.He was told that when that when the AC is on in a moist house it can build water mold and its quite possible how he became ill.Most people would think about suing or being angry, but John Beard knew that deep down as he stated evil doesn’t fix evil. He said that everyday is a journey and an experience and now he tries to have the best time in anything he does and he always which struck a cord with me looks at the glass half full.That has always been my outlook on life as well, but hearing it from John took the expression to a whole new level for me and I am proud to have become a friend of such a powerful,special, earth angel and being!!!

 John became thankful for second chances, for the air he breathes, and is truly blessed for the man he has become!Who he use to be is dead to him and he urges everyone to do the same and never be ashamed of their journey and to realize that your path shapes who you are today at this very moment in time!!! He said that GOD sees us as perfect and that’s all the reinforcement he needs to get by.He vented out his past to get to his future.

He actually graduated high school at 15 years of age taking college courses in high school and took summer courses which led him to leadership programs and to later starting his own business with H.O.P.E nation which are t-shirts and hats promoting his brand about hope and enlightening the lives of so many along the way. He’s in the midst of rolling out a program to send teddy bears to sick children around the country. And with the help of others we can make his mission come true.John Beard has a love of photography,of healthy eating and lifestyle and above all was blessed with a beautiful daughter through the grace of GOD!

The most important thing he has taught me is to take a time out for yourself.Look at the who,what,where, and when of your life and if it’s not good for you then make that change and turn your negatives into positives and turn your frowns into smiles! Love others more than you love yourself and watch how your world will change! Be an example for someone else, accept your situation or change it and above all enjoy life and create the moment!

I have to say I am blown away by his willingness to help so many in need, his journey and where its about to lead next! What a shining light and ray of hope for so many!!!

God Bless!!!

With any questions on his H.O.P.E nation line and on his latest quests:

Master Piece Maker King Saladeen

by Lisa Ajello on February 28, 2015







From celebs to every fashionista and beyond  that is part of the scene in every  big city, King Saladeen seems to be the hippest artist of choice these days!!! From his Art Basel Show in Miami this past December at Lou La Vie, to A’s for Jay’s, to his solo show this month in Soho, Raheem Saladeen Johnson is making quite a splash with his fans and critics!!! One of his most talked about works of art is his over the top FIERCE Bugatti interior work and his flawless Rennen Rims commission, and his female clientele are going crazy for his Birkin and LV bag huge hits!!! King Saladeen has been quoted saying that his inspirations have always came from a place so deep within, that ART has been his one and only way to express it! Creativity is an amazing outlet to express oneself and it seems like its what made this self taught artist  the man he is today!!!

Raheem Saladeen Johnson was born and raised in West Philly,where his passion for the arts began even before the age of 5! He would draw on whatever he could get his hands on especially  any wall that came his way, and especially for his mother!As an inner city child the arts and activities were far and few between. B ball became another great love of King Saladeen’s .He shined in the sport like no other scoring 1000 points in high school and in his christian prep school.For the first time he was given the opportunity to travel across the country where he began playing for the elite AAU teams. Upon his travels he began daydreaming about color and design and the landscapes he viewed were another source of influence and inspiration!

Unfortunately, an auto accident at 15 put basketball on the sidelines for a bit, but fortunately his little hiatus from the sport re-ignited his spark for drawing!!!! Upon healing from the accident,he received a Div 1 scholarship for the NCAA,but within 2 years he realized the paint brush was his true love and he was now ready to  put down the basketball and go full speed ahead!!! As he returned home to Philly, Raheem worked as design artist for a clothing company which later grew into a national success. After the company was sold he began doing work for a juvenile detention center for teens in Philly.While he was there he use to create paintings and sketches as a stress relief but it became a light in the dark for the teens and what they’ve been through and their current situations! I am sure he was a breathe of fresh air to the facility and what he brought to the table!

Luckily for King Saladeen his best friend ,John JP Thompson who always knew his talent and worth bought him his first set of professional art supplies.He influenced him to soley focus on the arts and to make it his life long career! He took his friends advice and the rest was history!!! In 2011 he began his venture at the Saladeen Art Group! Sadly a couple of years later, JP the man who motivated him to push forward and do what he does best past away of brain cancer! King Saladeen will never forget the friend was!!!

He began presenting art work in all of the hip cities and King Saladeen graced Hollywood with his first solo show and Miami there after!!! A huge buzz in the art community spread like wild fire and King Saladeen was onto gallery work,interiors for super high end auto collectors and the fabulous of fabulous fashion companies!!! I hear when he begins his all famous projects he paints based on his inspiration and vibe!!!

His love of art at such a young age never left him and carried him to his mind blowing career and journey which he is about to embark on!!!

I look forward to seeing where he goes next!!! I’m sure he’ll be worldwide due to his talents and his amazing management team Oren Schneider of PCNY along with his partner Wayne Schneider.

The Italian Beauty: The Adora Bag

by Lisa Ajello on February 12, 2015




What an amazing new company! Adora bags was just recently launched in November of 2014 creating quite the buzz this fashion week!They launched their first vertical product, the Adora tote”! This bold and modern bag is made with the highest quality materials that the  industry’s set their eyes on, with a removable pouch to enclose your phone or small belongings! This ever soo clever bag coming in black,orange, and blue will be shown today  at Fogo right across from the MOMA at 40 W 53rd street for the fabulous Nolcha Fashion Week! It is a great way for them to show the world for the first time the beauty and craftsmanship of their products!!!

I am soo excited to find such a functionable bag that can hold everything I need on a daily and then some for such a key price point! This incredible price as I heard made a breach in the market place! At $280 retail I do not think anyone can compete!Each piece is made in Vinci Florence made by the worlds best craftsman and artisans.They have worked with Prada,Gucci,Armani and now they are creating masterpieces with Adora!

The beauty of there designs is that all of their bags are incorporated in the U.S and based out of New York.Their designers are Matteo Gamberale,Matteo Gemignani,and Pietrantonio di Lenno.The story behind the brand tells us that both Matteo’s were originally from Tuscany, both have family that have been in the business for years and years but they never met till they both moved to the United States! After their chance meeting and so many coincidences both businessman knew it was their fate to bring the charm of the real Italian craftsman to the U.S while being able to offer these phenominal pieces at an affordable price!

Adora has a strong partnership with Fahrenheit 212,where they have 10% ownership in the business.Their vision was for them to become the Italian handcrafted Bespoke brand!Their goal is to bring emerging Italian fashion brands directly to the US!

Each any everyone of the Adora team and family has a passion for what they’re doing and truly cares about each  detail put into their products! I have no doubt that this company and bag are going to be a smashing success! And I hear some gorgeous new styles are about to take over the fashion scene this coming weekend!!!

 Alessandra Ambrosio is a perfect example of someone who should be carrying this very bag! She is the designers pick since she is beautiful, a mother, and always on the go! This bag is so versatile it can be worn by mothers,business women and anyone who is a get up and go type of gal! Its fashion forward,easy to open, with plenty of space for all of your everyday needs and beyond!!!

I’m all ready to bring my Adora on my trip! It’s packed and plane ready!!!

The Authentic: Hip Hop’s Motivating Man

by Lisa Ajello on February 12, 2015


authetic 3


I recently came across an artist who has been doing his thing in the hip hop community and beyond for well over a decade.His name: “The Authentic”! Fitting for who he is, where  he came from and the road he’s about to embark on! The Authentic is originally from South Jersey, a tough area to say the least. Music was a way through it all for him to express himself,and to show his passion for his culture, using the mic as a platform to deliver real life scenarios and to open people’s minds  to a reality that many did not understand!

From 100’s of performances and performing all over the country from New York City to Las Vegas he took his raw talent and began earning respect from many reputable figures.He shared the staged with KRS One,Big daddy Kane,Naughty By Nature,Jada Kiss,Styles P,Musiq SoulChild and so many more!

At this point he was ready to give back to his community! The Authentic said,by the grace of God he ended up going to college in North Carolina and making a name for himself as he took the college scene by storm!There he went on tour after tour, guest speaking every chance he had,putting together many live performances at the Martin Luther King Recreational Center in North Philly, even serving as a community relations director and spokesman for various non-profits and local movements.

He recalls growing up to 80’s hip hop, to the beats of Run DMC,KRS One,LL Cool-J, etc, etc.In the 90’s he toured the North East with Wyclef Jean’s award winning group,”City High”! At the time he signed withan independant label but it didn’t turn out as planned.At that point The Authentic knew it was time to step up his game and do what he did best! He bounced back like that and began rockin every stage he could, selling as many mixed tapes as he could get his hands on with no budget! He took this to the streets and beyond!

The Authentic hit the stage with LIL Kim,Tracey lee,Jackel the Bear and even landed a hot spot with lengendary  DJ Jay Ski! Later on it was with JadaKiss,Petey Pablo,Styles P, and DC.
Some of these moments and tours led him to a deal with an affiliate label with  NBC’s television network and from there he joined forces and formed Lock and Load releasing 2 hits!

After college he went back home and got sucked back into the hood.Trenton was a tough area especially in gang violence!That home coming prompted the release of,”The Line of Fire”.He moved a ground breaking number to the streets and the stores until tragedy struck! The Authentic was about to make his NYC biggest debut yet and as he left the stage he got word that his cousin and best friend was shot 2x in the back.After that fatal turn of events he recalled his cousins last conversation to him as he reminded him that the Authentic’s role was to be one of leadership and for him to become the public relations point person to the hoodsp!He knew it was time to turn away from the streets and to start spreading the word and using his voice as a tool for awareness of the realities that the inner city youths face!

He eventually moved to Philadelphia to continue his quest blazing through the city with new releases such as,“Reality of it all”,”Real Recognizes Real”, with hit single,”Turn it Up”!The Authentic made appearances all through Philly,Unity Day with Chaka Khan and what is near and dear to my heart based on what’s been going on in our communities today,”Stop the Violence” tours and campaigns!!! He worked on a compilation called,“Culture of Honor”,featuring Cassidy,Dipset,Tek, and Reef the Lost Cause!

He has captured like no other the reality of the streets, the real essence of hip hop since he is in a league of his own!!! His deep motivational tracks addressing social issues and the world around us is what sets him apart from the rest!!!!

The Authentic is beyond talented spreading the message for the youth of today to follow their passion and to express it in ways that don’t involve violence!!!

I look forward to collaborating with him on some big events we have in the works in the N.Y.C and beyond  involving art,music, fashion as a tribute to our youth and as a tribute to his ,” Stop The Violence” crusade!!!

This man has made his mark in the industry!!! That’s why he is my pick as hip hop’s leading motivating man!!!

I have recently come across a designer whose headquarters is currently in Miami,but began her journey as  a little girl in  Peru with a dream and a spark for the creative side of life! Dannitza Zimic loved to dream in a world of color and imagination! Her thoughts were fluttered of  glamorous women wearing designs exclusively made by her! Her biggest inspiration came from her great grandmother especially since everyone who knew her admired her avant garde way of dressing and overall demeanor She was a clear fashion icon,especially in the eyes of her biggest fan,great granddaughter and currently world renowned designer of cutting edge trends Dannitza Zimic!

As a child Dannitza was use to being dressed in shades of gray and corduroys, which takes me back to my very own childhood! I remember as a little girl my mother not being into fashion much use to dress me in overalls, and brown shoes. My aunt would take me to shop in fun girly dresses and Dannitza was lucky enough to have her mother send her beautiful, bright colored dresses which brought her to life!

Dannitza  originally became a major player in real estate, but after the market plummeted  she knew it was up to her to make her childhood dreams a realty.She knew what she loved and can she could spot a trend from a mile away,but lately she just wasn’t finding pieces she was in love with when shopping! She knew this was a sure sign and with the help of a pattern maker,dressmaker and herself, Dannitza Zimic became a worldwide hit!!!!!

Mittmi Designs was then BORN!!! She started off with $200 dollars ,16 fabrics, and orders from friends.From that point on her destiny was in motion! She paved the way for her future and built upon what she made from her small beginnings! It seems that nothing was going to stop this determined,strong willed  lady! Ms. Zimic is a force to be reckoned with!!! She is one empowering woman full of  LIFE,LOVE, and BEAUTY!

She has since dressed singer Maya, the N.J Housewives,Maria Elena Salinas and so many more! Her garments are known for their fabulous fit and  are made in house! Puerto Rico will be her next destination to open up shop and I’m sure after that she’ll one day be taking on all of the Caribbean Islands! What a huge success that will be!!!! She also sells her designs on a wholesale level to 200 boutiques in the U.S,Greece,Australia,Canada,Ireland,Lebanon,Jamaica,France,Spain,Mexico, and Paris!!!

She has been featured in the N.Y Times,People Style Watch,CNN,the Miami Herald, and on many Hispanic media channels and known for unforgettable fabrics and prints  shes hand picks from around the globe!!!

Designer Danittza Zimic is hands down an inspiration to so many women from all over showing them that everyone can turn their passion into gold as long as they’re positive,ambitious, and have a vision!!!

Skin care guru Gilah Gurovitsch is in a league of her own! Besides taking on many A list clients who rumor has it never leave her side,the Ms. Gurovitsch has taken the skin care world by storm gracing  faces of clients around the globe! Gilah began her journey in Finland where she was born and raised and knew looking and feeling good from the inside out was the key factor to creating a skin care process and products that would change the skin care industry. She knew combining her love for reiki and spirituality would be a win win when it came  to making a clients skin look brand new! Gilah integrated the art of reiki into each face she touched giving that extra bit of love and care!

After leaving Europe Ms. Gurovitsch took her journey over to the N.Y.C where she soon became head of the skin care department of the legendary Soho Sanctuary located on Greene Street! There she met and has graced the faces of many celebrities,models, and unknowns who to this day after decades swear by her and her techniques and product line she created from scratch! After an amazing run in the big city, Gilah watched the movie,”Working Girl”, and was fascinated by the big yellow ferry transporting boatloads of people to work day in and day out! She had a friend who was living on the other side of the big apple and boat and decided to take a chance and head over to Staten Island where she decided to raise her two beautiful children! As a single mother, and new to the island she knew that she needed to create a buzz on the island like she did in Europe and in New York City so that she can settle down and make her mark!

Gilah has done reiki healing facials with her healing hands that clients swear by,micro current facials to wake up the face,and she is also known as the brow shaping queen! Before a big awards night many celebs have gone to her to create the perfect brow and to make sure their skin looks just right! Along with that she does waxing and she now creates from scratch amazing healing chakra candles! They are perfect to change the aura of your home, mind, and spirit and fabulous gift items for the holiday season! She is about to embark on showcasing her candles at some very high end NYC auction house events which she was asked to partake in due to the aesthetics and popularity of the brand!

I’m so happy to announce that after doing facials and treatments in her home Ms.Gurovitsch is now located at 710 Forest Ave,SI,NY 10310 in a wellness center with chiropractor  Dr.Andrea Buonato who specializes in the art of concept therapy.With concept therapy, she focus’s on different zones of your body that may need adjusting ie: circulatory zone,eliminative,respiratory,muscular,digestive,etc,etc.It’s a wonderful way to get your body aligned and feel better than you ever could imagine!

Petite Parade Kids Fashion Shows

by Lisa Ajello on October 23, 2014



Just attended Day 2 of the Petite Parade Kids shows in NYC on Sunday October 19th which is the 7th edition! This time the shows were located in Bath Studios on East 11th st spreading excitment as usual throughout the toddler and teen industry and community! What a joy it always is to watch the mini model brigade strut their stuff and take over the scene! Each child soooo beautiful and unique in their own ways and such fun designers showcasing their newest and runway ready pieces!!!

One of my favorites was,”ARIA“!All pieces are handmade in the USA and many of the designers  trends and designs were food inspired,play date ready, and equipped for their very OWN,” FASHIONS NIGHT OUT”!The looks were simple yet elegant,contemporary, yet modern!Aria’s designer prides herself in keeping a fresh approach to fashion as she states with her colorful chic creations!

Visit and you may email her at


Another big hit was,“CHARMED“, a line created for kids, tots, and teens.It is a class act line coveted by moms and adored by kids for their super cool looks!Their quality is second to none and their chic trendy look sets them a part from all the rest.

The Showstopping SolShine Childrens Line

by Lisa Ajello on October 23, 2014







SolShine childrenswear and accessories was beyond my favorite new finds among childrens designers!!!Attending the fabulous, “Petite Parade“, kids fashion shows year after year and discovering new designers as their mini models walked the catwalk has always been a joy of mine! Being a mother of a beautiful 7 year old daughter  it has always been exciting for the two of us to attend the shows together and work the activities as one of our little mommy and daughter bonding days.Last season my daughter spotted the cutest, most ecclectic little girl this time not on stage, but part of the audience with her beautiful hip mother. Everyone in the audience and beyond was going crazy for this dynamic duo!The little girl’s name was,”Solee Laboy“, and she was rocking the best sunglasses and outfits I have ever seen.She stood out among the crowd and to me was the star of the little fashion brigade last year and this year as well! Not suprisingly when I approached her mom the super fabulous,” Dominque Sampson,” did I find out that she designed her precious princess’s  entire get up including those coveted sunglasses that the whole audience was raving about! Hence, from that day on did my daughter and myself become their biggest fans!!!

The story begins with designer Dominque Sampson as she unfolds her passion for what she does through the eyes of her sweet daughter Solee who is her sunshine,her heart, and beyond! She wanted to create affordable clothing and accessories, yet stylish and unique giving children a voice through her designs and allowing their fun side to shine through every step of the way! She would describe her pieces as being Afro Centric,Bohemian, yet a bit on the Hipster side which pretty much  sums up who she is! She draws her inspiration from her African heritage and has been inspired in so many ways by.”Solange Knowles“.

Most of her designs are exuberant and show loads of personality,handcrafted with LOVE and PATIENCE through Dominque’s true passion for what she does day in and day out! She noticed how her daughter and children in general love to wear adult accessories such as sunglasses,jewelry,and clothing. Based on her observations and from being a hip mother, she knew what she  was about to create in honor of her sunshine,”Solee”!!!

She is truly one of my favorite new finds and designers and I’m soo happy to be sharing her with all of you!!!

Happy Shopping!!!

Favor For a Favor with Messiah Muhammad

by Lisa Ajello on July 31, 2014



One of the BEST known urban writers of our time, the beyond talented,”Messiah Muhammad! All I can say is I haven’t put this cliff hanger down for more than five minutes at  a time questioning the authors every move,wondering what’s next to occur.This book is by far my favorite read in a decade or so!!! It is exactly what intellects and fans of the great Maya Angelo have been in search of.A close comparison is “The Coldest Winter Ever”, by Soulja Sista.Many may say his first chapter has comparisons to a James Paterson novel.I think its in an entire class of its own.The reality and the detailed truth is what makes this piece so intriguing and not boring like most reads.If you love this, you must in fact get ready for,”The Curse of ClaraMay”, and all else that follows!

It is a unstoppable, over the top piece by the almighty,”Messiah Muhammad!He truly brings the audience with him through his journey as his story unfolds.Individuals from every ethnicity will be able to relate to his read due to the vast variety of characters he portrays through the urban community. One in particular,detective James Hatchet who is on the verge of retirement from the Rochester police dept is a key player in this story as he is on a mission to solve a triple homicide with one victim being his only son killed execution style in an unsolved murder. The narrator Shashonnie Williams journey takes place in Attica as he is serving a 30 year sentence which he ultimately is wrongly accused of.Next piece of the puzzle, is when a mobster in prison asks him to provide him with his freedom.The underlying question is could he make an informant disappear?

Next up is Mr.Williams grandmother who made a deal with a voodoo priestess from Haiti! The agreement was to get her grandson out of prison and in return a favor would be granted to the priestess! Hence the title, “A Favor for a Favor”!!! Hands down this is a movie in the making! This is the 2nd of a series and when it comes down to it it’s santeria and voodoo that are the center of this storyline and leave the readers at the edge of their seats!!!! The author’s roots began as a child in Haiti, as his travels take him to Rochester New York where he resides much of his life after his beloved grandmother’s passing.

Pondering upon his title,”A Favor for a Favor”, led me to think about how in life  people help others and sometimes in the long run in fact need that favor returned! At first you feel you do it to help and you don’t need anything in return, but somehow, somewhere down the line that favor comes in handy and gets you just where you need to be at that very moment in time!

Messiah Muhammad is a force to be reckoned with! He is  the author and the future screenplay writer of our time to be on the watch for!!! From where he was as a child, to how this unfolds,to where this leading man is headed is like night and day!!!!

We wish this rising star only the best and can not wait to see his series hit the silver screen!!! His childhood teachers knew he had a gift,now the whole world gets to see his creation come to life!!!






What an amazing concept and product that has just been brought to my attention!!!!!

Lauren Piccirillo a young, inventive new mother who was trying to multitask between her home, her day to day duties and the birth of her second child  came up with the ultimate innovative product which she likes to call,”Baby Soothe, Mother’s Touch”!!! This device is a holistic way to massage your child and calm the crying creating a peaceful environment for baby and mommy!

It’s the ultimate baby gift for a mother healing from pregnancy or delivery.Since massages are known to ease colic symptoms,soothing their nervous system,  boosting your child’s immune system by helping with digestion. and even alleviating their teething pain, Baby Soothe will be the perfect segway to creating this environment for your child!

Preparing bottles and meals has just gotten a whole lot easier, but most importantly your child is in a calmer place feeling nurtured due to the massaging pulses of their mother’s touch via Baby Soothe and its calming music.

Nurses, doctors,celebrities, and new mother’s have been raving about this one of a kind product! Mrs. Piccirillo said it is a drug free way to ease baby’s pain or discomfort.Baby Soothe even has an automatic shut off system in case the baby rolls on top of the device.This mommy has thought of everything!!!

From what I hear she has been working on this product for some time and rolled it out just as it was perfected! Her beautiful sons were her inspiration and now with this product they revel in every moment they share together.

I know exactly what I’m getting all of my new mommy friends!!!!

Kickstarter helped get her product out there, and it has only just begun!

Farvadin Fathi, other wise known as,”FaFa”, in the world of fashion,design,and innovative thinkers conceptualized the creative concept of the almighty,”Hookup”! If you’re not familiar within this genius idea you will be now! The designers inspiration came out of an not so lucky experience, yet this not so lucky run in became the driving force behind her career. FaFa’s sister’s Hermes Birkin bag was stolen in a busy cafe!  We all know the pretty price tag of a Birkin! After that the rest was history and, “FaFa Concepts”, was born!

Her invention was to build an elegant product to protect handbags from damage and theft! I know my biggest pet peeve is if a restaurant or bar doesn’t have a hook to hang my handbag and even then so I wonder will it hold my bag without breaking it’s handle? Most women I’m sure are like me and carry their nine lives and then some in their bag.It carries their life force!

Fa Fa orchestrated a meeting of the minds and collaborated with Stanford engineers to make this product the success it is today! She studied design at Esmond a International in Paris and understudied with many well known French designers. She took pride in The courses in product material and interior design she took at Parsons in NYC!

She was so dedicated to her vision that she came up with 3 different versions of the product she so proudly stands behind called the , “Hookup”.This product has been used by some of the most affluent women in the world!!!

You know you are in good hands when you are working with one of Casandra Properties most aggressive real estate agents, the insanely confident, no nonsense,” Robert Nixon”!!! What a pleasure it was for the eye PR media staff to be able to get a sneak peak into his world and into how passionate he is about this business which is as you all know  on a major upswing! An extreme mover and shaker, Robert Nixon started out in Marist College, where  he was the president of a super exclusive entrepreneural networking team. Robert said that being part of that team brought him to new levels on how to being the best team leader is possible. In that position he won awards along with his fellow students for generating pitches for venture capitalist firms and investors and many other high level game plans were put into action and blue printed toward his future goals which  he is on his way to achieve at this very moment!!!

Casandra Properties  has astoundingly done $1 billion in transactional real estate and in my opinion is one of the top sales and leasing companies around based on their company dynamics and the teams they have strategically put together! Some major projects that have finally broke ground and are on their way to change the face of the St. George area are the giant observation wheel project which will bring droves of tourists and locals from all over, the Empire outlets which are about to put Staten Island on the map  in terms of shopping goes, major luxury buildings, such as the Miami/NYC esque gorgeous building called, “The View” which Rob has exclusivity on, and I’m sure are plethora of others which are about  about to pop up before your eyes!

The St. George projects were on the back burner for awhile but have made their debut and are on fire. The St George theatre, Snug Harbor, the fresh food and vegetable markets all are major assests to this area, as well as the 911 memorial which is located on the outskirts of the S.I ferry. Don’t be surprised when this area becomes one of the hippest zip codes around. Word is that some major players are about to change the name of the game in this area and turn it into a cross between Long Branch and the N.Y.C. Staten Island has been in need of this for a long time and with the Casandra real estate team and Robert Nixon as one of their front runners it is sure to be a major success!!! They even won,”The Curbed Cup”, award for one of the most up and coming neighborhoods in the city!

Robert Nixon is all about keeping a high level of professionalism and giving a personalized experience to each individual, and each business he is on the fore front with. His most valuable quality is his understanding of each one of his clients needs, getting them exactly where they desire to be and never accepting no as answer until they are in their desired location. Mr.Nixon is also involved in marketing and innovative development projects with Casandra which will become a catalyst for major future business deals.

If you’re in the market for real estate or you’d like to get involved, contact one of the best brokers around as the level of service you will receive is second to none, and the outcome is even greater!
